North Yorkshire Mobility Scooter Provision
The following sites have mobility scooters for hire… it is ALWAYS wise to enquire in advance to ensure one is available:
Malham Tarn Estate National Trust
Malham Tarn Estate, Waterhouses, Settle, BD24 9PT is a National Trust Property with outstanding area of limestone pavements, upland hill farms and flower-rich hay meadows provides a marvellous setting for walking, cycling or just enjoying the great outdoors. The Tramper is available to hire Mondays – Fridays between 10am – 2pm, subject to availability, at a charge of £5 per day pre-booked by telephone on 01729 830416 or EMail.
Castle Howard Arboretum Trust
The Castle Howard Arboretum, York YO60 7DA is situated very close to Castle Howard. It is a large site with extensive planting of specimen trees of many types. If you’d like to explore the highlights of the arboretum’s tree collection at your own pace, pick up a copy of the tree trail map in the Visitor Centre. This map details our short and long tree trails, which take about 1 and 2 hours to complete respectively. These approximate timings depend, of course, entirely on how fast you choose to walk and how often you pause to admire the view! Both trails guide you to some of our most interesting and beautiful trees such as Sorbus caloneura (Chinese Mountain Ash). The original seed from which this tree grew was collected in 1985 on an expedition to an isolated mountain in China by Jim Russell (who, with George Howard, created and planted the Yorkshire Arboretum) and John Simmons (instigator of the Castle Howard Arboretum Trust). The Arboretum is open from the beginning of March until the end of November. There are two Trampers available allowing the user to access most parts of site and inspect the trees closely. There is a visitor centre with café. 2 Trampers available that can be pre-booked on 01653 648598
